Absolute class. The Damned at their very best. The best stuff the Damned have done over the years for me has always been a collaboration between the lighter poppy side of The Captain and the darker side of Mr Vanian. This has it all ,massively catchy singalong tunes and wonderfull melodic dramatic, almost operattic masterpieces and lots in between. Typical Damned. Put it on and you will never take it off. And if you do take it off the tunes will be with you all day. Genius.[ps] Saw them last night in Manchester and they are as good as ever, Pinch bangs away as fast and furious as anyone you care to name and Stu looks more comfy every time I see him. Great gig, cheers.

The Damned seem to be like a good wine, they just seem to get better with age that includes classic albums like "Damned Damned Damned, "The Black Album" etc. Its been a good 7 years since Grave Disorder and this new offering from our good mates the Damned does not disappoint. Even receiving the album was a pleasant surprise. For those who have never seen the Album cover or only seen it on Websites like Amazon you'd be forgiven for thinking its a disappointing piece of Artwork, in fact receive it and you'll realise what a clever album cover it is.
As for the album itself it really is a testament to the creative geniuses that are The Damned. A cross between The Black Album and Strawberries, a mix of 2008 Punk, Gothic and a large dose of Psychedelic is what you'll get. Every track is a joy to listen to. Tracks like "Dr Woolfenstein", "Diamonds", "Since I met you" and "Perfect Sunday" are perhaps my favorites. "Dark Asteroid" I can't help but feel is a tribute to Syd Barret (even down to Daves vocals) and could have come off a late 60s Pink Floyd Album (Captain and Monty obviously having too much fun!).
To sum up this album it is a DAMNED good album and a great follow up to Grave Disorder..... But why oh why do we have to wait so long for The Damned to get back in the Studio.... Come on guys lets not leave it so long for you next effort!

Move over John Terry - there is only one Captain! However, this is really a band album, which is, I suspect, where the strength lies. The old guard come up trumps as ever. Some classic guitar and great vocals. (Could any other singer deliver a Damned number that would even come close to Mr Vanian's vocals?.)
Yes, there are echoes of Strawberries/ Phantasmagoria and the brilliant Black Album, but this sits right up there with these works and doesn't sound dated. What takes it to another level is the combination of great drumming, strong bass lines and Monty's keyboards added to Dave and Captain's talents. Despite the depth and variety the songs gel together and - there are NO fillers and NO duds.
Favourites? Tracks 1 - 13! Their most psychedelic and satisfying album in years .... go and buy it now, you know you want to!

7 long years have passed since the magnificent Grave Disorder but The Damned have gigged constantly since then becoming more and more cohesive as they do so. Finally a new album. The single Little Miss Disaster (included here) from 2006 was a hint of what was to come and a tantalising taster. So, Who's Paranoid sees The Damned building upon the sound and styles of Grave Disorder whilst moving on to experiment with yet new areas. Opening track A Nation Fit For Heroes sounds almost like prime Stranglers. From there on it's a journey into a myriad of different styles encompassing music hall sing-a-long(?) (Dr Woofenstein), pop-rock (Diamonds, Little Miss Disaster, Just Hanging,), ballads (Since I Met You), punk / rock of course ( Danger To Yourself, Maid For Pleasure, Perfect Sunday, Nothing), gothic ballads (Nature's Dark Passion) and wig-out psychedelia (Dark Asteroid). The standout is the magnificent Perfect Sunday which has a guitar lick any self-respecting rock band would kill for! The real surprise, however, comes in the form of the 14 minute Dark Asteroid. This is not the first time that The Damned have played around with this particular genre (check out 1980's Curtain Call) but this is the first time that Captain and Monty have really let their imagination run riot! So, Who's Paranoid is a magnificent album, great songs, brilliantly played and with faultless production. Everybody should own a copy just to see how it should be done. Genius!

The Damned have created something here which alongside "Grave Disorder" makes an "old Rocker" like myself quite emotional, as ten or fifteen years ago not in my wildest dreams would I have imagined a release like this because as far as I was concerned, The Damned had disbanded.
It is only in 2004 that I found out they had reformed, but not only that, but a lineup which again included The Captain,who in my opinion is one of the most underrated guitarists in the history of rock.
So Who's Paranoid fullfills all the potential they have in the past hinted at in their other recordings, what with Dave Vanian's dark vision and Sensible's psychedelic fancies. Tracks like Dark Asteroid show where in truth the Damned's heart has always been.Time now to see them live, as one of the alltime great live bands, in my opinion up there with The Who and Deep Purple
